May was a busy month.There were two quilt finishes. First was a nine patch that I made from a friend's scraps. I actually got two from her scrap bag, and showed the other one last month. I really love this one, and may decide to keep it.
This next quilt used up the last of a pile off pink hexies that I've had for several years. I made one larger quilt about 2 years ago, then a doll quilt in March, and now a baby quilt. I think I had to add two hexies to the pile to finish this.
I also put the finishing touches on two baby afghans that will be donated to our local hospital. Crocheting is my craft of choice for car trips.
I signed up for a project in May to make one heart block each day, and I accomplished that, plus a couple of extras to have an even 36. I'll be looking for some sashing fabric on discount day at the LQS this week, and have another donation quilt for the pile. These were all made from a charm pack that has been collecting dust for awhile.
I've been keeping up with this small mystery BOM on Kathleen Tracy's FB group. The June border was added yesterday, and I believe there's one more border to come.
My June blocks for RSC18 are also finished!
DH had a birthday at the end of May, and he wanted to go to North Carolina to eat at a restaurant that is featured on a TV program that he watches. He loved every minute of the visit. I didn't love the restaurant, but the rest of the trip was fun. A few highlights follow.
|These fields were like being in a water color painting! So incredible.|

|The birthplace of Pepsi Cola|
We rode ferries, toured a fort, spent time on the beach, and ate lots of good seafood. It was a beautiful area of North Carolina, and we will return some day!
Keep on stitching....................Sunny
